COLLEEN’S WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 103, “FALL & TRY,” #SYNONYMSONLY

Etheree Poetry consists of 10 lines, a syllabic poem (1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10) –  rhyme: none

I used plunge for fall, undertake for try.

___________

Plunge

Over

Fishing quay

Dog undertake

Reflexive rescue

Child in water current

Canoe capsized at rapids

Fido with a foot in his mouth

Child bobs up head first, wailing ensue

Coast Guards warmly envelop dog and child

  2. I haven’t seen this particular form of rescue from a dog.
    I try to remember though, to ask first -to pet- a rescue dog in training.
    Some trainers do not want the dog to be overly friendly with others when they are supposed to be responsible for a single person.

    Lovely form.
